Vinzenz Peters

PhD Candidate in Economics at the School of Business and Economics of Maastricht University 

Welcome to my website! 

I'm a PhD candidate in Economics at the Department of Macro, International, and Labour Economics (MILE) at the School of Business and Economics of Maastricht University in the Netherlands. My supervisors are Mark Sanders and Stefan Straetmans

In my research, I address the question of how financial systems, and specifically banking, can be instrumental in promoting sustainable and resilient economic development in the face of climate change. As an applied economist, I combine rigorous econometric analysis and strong critical thinking skills with interdisciplinary approaches and perspectives to advance our common knowledge about and our ability to overcome the big challenges of our time.
